    lmao.

    3 is too many, but only having 1 person commentating would be absolutely shithouse. Up there with your other 'bright' ideas like having the BBL comp suspended for a summer.

    I'd have hoped they could get more Indians for the box. Is Ganguly on Foxtel? Was there no-one else who could've been available?

    I guess Ganguly would be doing the Indian broadcast of the series?

    Think Harsha Bhogle is on Fox

    Has only got like it just now with a Brayshaw/Slats/McGrath combo

    Flem's been good, Punter, Mitchell and Lane the standouts, Dizzy showed intelligence. Pidge was good with Ricky but is a follower with Slater

    Slater just shits up the box whenever he is on air, but aside from that I’ve quite enjoyed he coverage on both channels. Refreshing after what we’ve put up with from Nine for the last decade.

    With Punter and Lane to start the day I found him bearable, he needs to stay away from JB though, he eggs him on and that's where his Ch 9 side comes out

    Copeland I'm guessing, I haven't got the coverage on at the moment

    He's a very nothing commentator at the moment, if they're only using him for the big board analytics I don't see the point of having him on there

    As an anti-whinge - love that ch7 have the current score displayed during the ad breaks, and during the lunch & tea breaks - hate ads but they are a necessary evil of commercial television.

    Nothing worse than flicking channels to check the cricket score only to have to sit through an entire ad break - worse when it was a drinks break.

    Damien Fleming REALLY irritates me with his 'avenue of apprehension' and other associated phrases using aliteration.
    He seems to think it's creative and funny.
    I remember someone on here calling him 'the ars**ole of alliteration' which is certainly accurate.

    ch7 just turned all sorts of fully pathetic before, with Fleming and McGrath crapping on for about 5 minutes about this fast bowlers cartel vs batsman bullcrap that no one actually cares about, or finds funny, besides them.

    Why is there such a difference in volume between 7HD (70) and 7Mate(73) ?

    Surely not beyond the wit of man to normalise the modulation?
